that seems to be a cpan installer issue, not related to SWISH::Prog.

that's coming from SWISH::3->slurp(). I'm not entirely sure what the "Bad
realloc()" message means, but perl-diagnostics suggests it may have been related
to how slurp() was trying to coerce Perl into managing an already-malloc'd char*.

I've changed SWISH::3->slurp in r2925 to be a little less efficient (clever) but
hopefully that fixes the segfault you're seeing.

Please install SWISH::3 from svn:

and see if that helps.
